  • I use NixOS on my workstations, and I’m slowly migrating many of my server VMs over to it.

    NixOS w/flakes + home-manager + impermanence on zfs + disko w/ nixos-anywhere is amazing and gives an insane amount of declarative control over your system.

    That said, the current state of the leadership gives me pause to recommend it to anyone, and I do have a few devil’s advocate responses to some of what you said:

    Every package has its own dependencies, so you can install a 7 year old firefox alongside the latest, and have no interference.

    Unless the dependency is Qt, then it better all be the same version.

    Abandons the HFS, but can still fake it for apps that need it.

    Using ldd and nix-alien to patch in dynamic libraries still sucks, and often doesn’t work without a lot of extra effort. If what I want isn’t in nixpkgs, and I can’t get nix-alien to work on the first try, I just end up not using whatever I was trying to run.




  • That’s what I use. It’s way more stripped down than a modern smart watch, but it has good battery life, a transflexive LCD, can discretely give me notifications so I can keep my phone on silent, and can show me the weather at a glance.

    There are more things it can do, I just find my phone is better for the majority of them.

    Thanks. I don’t generally listen to audio books, so what I’m really looking for is a self-hosted solution for podcast syncing that works better than gpodder while keeping feature parity with AntennaPod on my phone. It sucks that ABS is so close to that but decided to not go the last 10% of the way. I’m sure they have a good reason.

    on top of that, this whole plea to the rich fucks in the audience is just gonna make them think “you’re right, I do need to think about my children. I better amass as much wealth as possible, so that no matter how fucked the world gets, my children in particular can buy their way to the best life.”

    Architectural blueprints have been explicitly covered by copyright in the US since 1990, but were likely implicitly covered before then.

    He could always provide an open-source license before claiming that he is “open sourcing” his designs. You could always check for a license before claiming that something is open-source. Putting the onus on people after the fact to make those previous claims true doesn’t make any sense.
